good picture quality, cute, but definitely a little slow

Summary: i like the camera (got it in blue), but i certainly don't love it. the quality of the pictures is great, and it takes excellent pictures without a flash (as others have mentioned). it's not so small that it's hard to handle, but also easily drops into a pocket. the rubber grip on the side is great - you can actually keep a hold on it, even if you're moving about - and it also has a strap - so if you DO drop it, you must have been trying to.
A noticable difference from my last "point and shoot"

Summary: Excellent quality pictures! Although it looks like a normal "point and shoot," the pictures are very professional looking. I am and inexperienced photographer used to a Cannon, which I can whip in and out of action at any time. Although this camera takes an extra second to warm up, the pictures are worth it!
Summary: I bought this camera to use for our school sports team. I take pictures and video, edit them, and make slideshows. I particularly love the video on this camera; it's crystal clear and great quality. I would definitely buy this camera again because it's a perfect travel camera for our team and takes great pictures and video.
Summary: We did a lot of research before purchasing this camera, and we are COMPLETELY blown away by how great it is! The pictures are perfect, and the camera snaps the photo so quickly (very similar to what I would expect from a DSLR camera). I have young children who are always on the move, and the Sony Cyber-Shot captures it all with crisp/color-saturated photos. The videos are also fantastic! I highly highly recommend this camera!!!
Summary: This Sony GPS-enabled digital camera is perfect for the work I do, which is Archaeology. Not only does it produce very crisp images, I can view where I took the images on Google Earth. This is a major advantage when trying to re-locate or describe a location to someone. I would recommend this camera to anyone who performs fieldwork and where field images are important forms of communication.
Summary: This camera is all I thought it would be and more. The display is large and well-lit, something very important to me as someone who needs reading lenses. I am not a photographer so I can't write a technical review. But I was taking a variety of photos and video right away. I found the panorama function a little tricky but with some practice I got it right. I bought this camera to take hiking with me and the zoom and panorama functions were the main selling point.
